Twin Peaks  Reply with quote  

I just copped the first season on DVD the other day and have several things to say about this shit.

1. It's hot.
2. Is their a second season? Is it worth watching?
3. What's up with that "Fire Walk With Me Movie"? IS that shit worth seeing?
4. This shit is hot.

I can't believe this show was actually popular at a grand level. I mean, shit, my mom used to watch it and she's totally not into anything as weird or as challenging as "Twin Peaks." How the eff did that happen?

Hot, thanks.

Is the really cute little highschool girl from the first season in the second season? I want to have casual marriage with that one.

are you talking about donna hayworth?

if so, yeah you will see her more. the first season was rill short, like 7 episodes, due to being picked mid season. the second season was a full season and has twice as many episodes. they also became more surreal and creepy.

Holy shit I fucking love Twin Peaks. Best TV show EVER. I was thinking of starting a thread on this myself. I've been downloading the second season recently and I'm about half way through. It's definitely worth getting hold of.

I bought Season One and the Movie on DVD, but I was waiting for Season Two to come out. Then it was announced that it wouldn't be released, due to lack of interest (hence the reason I started downloading). Although, now I've heard rumours that they may release it afterall, I wish they'd make up their minds and release it already.

The prequel to David Lynch and Mark Frost's TV series Twin Peaks, Fire Walk with Me delves deeper into the investigation by FBI Agent Chet Desmond into the murder of waitress Teresa Banks and follows Laura Palmer in the week before her murder.

Emynd, I can't believe you even asked if the second season was worth watching. Twin Peaks, is by far.... BY FAR, the greatest non-sitcom television show in the history of television. If you throw sitcons in there then you get messy with the simpsons and a few others... but those aside, it's the best show ever. Ever. EVER EVER EVER. Watch it again and again and again and again.

I believe David Lynch did the T.V. series directing as well which is why it was so good. If you haven't checked out other films by him, I suggest pretty much all of them:

Eraserhead
The Elephant Man
Lost Highway
TP: FWM
Dune
Blue Velvet

Some twisted material, I was a teacher's aid for a class that watched all his films and analyzed them, it was interesting. You should watch these. Enjoy Emynd, and congrats on that Comp you're on that's coming out soon.

DO NOT SLEEP ON WILD AT HEART!!!!

--

Twin Peaks is the serious joint. Melissa and I haven't got to the second season yet, but we made sure to see the pilot (although it was the oddly mangled Euro version) first and then sit almost directly through the whole first season (she got me the DVD collection for my birthday) in two days.

It's such a great combination of charming and unsettling!

Other excellent TV series you might not expect:
Northern Exposure (I've heard St. Elsewhere is also good but I haven't seen it)
Buffy: The Vampire Slayer (I know, it obviously sucks, right? That's what I thought. Wrong.)

How is Lost Highway, anyway? I cant find t in any videostore, and I was wondering if its worth buying. I liked Fire Walk With Me, and the show, but Mulholland Drive was fucking weak. Let me know how it is

Speaking of which, one of the greatest parts of the simpsons is in a flashback where homer is watching twin peaks


*scene of guy dancing with a horse under a tree that has traffic lights hanging from it*

Homer stands up clapping: "brilliant! brilliant!"
In his head: "i have no idea what's going on"

The Twin Peaks TV show passed me over at an age I was too young to get into it. I guess I should check them out now though.

Lynch really screwed up with Dune though, thats the one movie I bet he never made.

If you don't like Mulholland Drive, chances are you won't like Lost Highway.

Wild At Heart is my favorite Lynch film. Twin Peaks was only directed by Lynch a few times here and there, it was not something he had his fingers on the whole time by any means at all, that is a myth. He co-write it with mark frost, and Frost never gets the props he deserves.

Also, Dune sucked.... Mullholland was my favorite film of that year and The Lost Highway is interesting, but for me, the metaphors are so personal to Lynch that I can't decipher them in the least, and to me, that is a flawed film.... way too personal for something put into every movie theatre in the country... but thats just me.

Okay, if I remember correctly (which I probably don't), Lynch did Dune reluctantly as part of a deal to get the backing to do... Elephant Man, maybe?

I more or less take them like Aesop Rock or Noah23 lyrics - I don't need to turn over every rock and know what everything means absolutely (although I don't mind revelations or shared insight), I just take them as impressionistic works and deal with what they evoke that way.
